RSS Artists’ Association MUU


November 2018
Visiting curator: An Paenhuysen



An Paenhuysen is a freelance curator, art writer and educator living in Berlin. She is MUU’s curator guest in collaboration with HIAP’s Curator residency, and part of MUU’s Exhibition committee in November 2018 together with MUU’s member artists Helinä Hukkataival, Liisa Kanerva, Leevi Lehtinen, Elsa Trzaska and director Timo Soppela.

During her stay in Helsinki she will organise Silly Glamour – Glamorous Silliness II writing workshop at MUU together with artist, curator, and radio maker Anna Bromley. Artists of the group MUU Kirjoittaa / MUU Writes will participate the workshop.

Paenhuysen is a lecturer of art writing and cultural theory at Node Center for Curatorial Studies. Together with Creative Forms in Art Writing class she published a series of e-books, of which the last one was about storytelling in art writing.

Almost a year ago Bromley invited Paenhuysen for a radio session in the frame of her monthly program at Berlin. The session revolved around the seemingly contradictory concepts of silliness and glamour. Payenhuysen happened to be on a HIAP residency in Helsinki and so Bromley turned the radio play into a Berlin-Helsinki cut-up collage diary.

Now, November 2018, as An returns to Helsinki, Anna decides to cross the water and pay her a visit for a sequel: Silly Glam- our – Glamorous Silliness II. Silly Glamour – Glamorous Silliness II is a get-together of a small, intimate group. They explore writing with fun and exercise our fingers in jotting down half thoughts.
